Despite Slash’s lifelong passion for cinema, he does not anticipate Guns N’ Roses pursuing a film project. The guitarist, who composed the score and served as a producer for the new horror film The Breach, recently told MovieMaker that music biopics are not his thing. GNR has collectively declined opportunities to explore a film about their career, and Slash himself was offered a movie deal in 2007 following the publication of his autobiography.
“We’re not really interested,” he stated. “And I cannot imagine trying to find actors who can accurately portray the band. I mean, rock ‘n’ roll films as a whole suffer from being super, super corny and unrealistic.” He proceeded: “There are very few excellent rock and roll films. Therefore, I would be averse to selling ourselves short with a script that purports to depict our history. I don’t see it happening.” You can hear Slash’s entire conversation with MovieMaker by using the iHeartRadio player provided below. In September, Slash will resume touring with GNR.
